Keep it clean with glue-edge guards and clamp-caul cappers
I used a magazine project plan to make a set of bench risers for gluing parts together, such as laminating boards as shown above. To keep excess glue from dribbling onto the risers, I added one improvement: plastic, U-channel shelf caps from the hardware store. Because they're made to conceal particleboard shelving edges, they fit 3⁄4 " stock perfectly. They protect the risers from messy glue-ups so well, I went ahead and added them to my collection of clamping cauls.
